Fethiye Information & City Guide: Street Markets
Fethiye is the busiest on Tuesdays because the region’s largest market comes to town. At the market you can happily shop anything from fresh organic vegetables to a selection of clothes and home products.
Going shopping at the local markets is great if you’re self-catering rather than staying in one of the many hotels in Fethiye. Marvel at the array of fresh fruit and veg on the main huge Fethiye Market before strolling around the hundreds of fake designer clothes, shoes, sunglasses stalls. Can’t say we ever buy any of the fake stuff but it’s worth a wander around. Oh, and you should try Gözleme – A Turkish flatbread or the traditional village bread, bazlama. (The big market is every Tuesday in Fethiye, every Sunday in Çalış – or if it’s just the foods you’re after, there’s a pleasant, low key farmers’ Friday market on the site of the Tuesday market. Hisarönü market is every Monday, and Çiftlik Market, every Thursday and if you’re up in Üzümlü, your market day is Friday.)
